MAHWAH, New Jersey — The 2016 Jaguar F-Pace, the British brand's first crossover, will feature technologies derived from the Jaguar F-Type coupe, the automaker said in a statement late Tuesday. The F-Pace will debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show and arrive at Jaguar showrooms next year.
Technical F-Pace details include torque vectoring by braking technology, which senses impending understeer during cornering. Jaguar said the technology provides precise braking on the inside rear wheel while feeding torque to the outside rear wheel for "confident control."
The family-oriented F-Pace will also feature an electric power-assisted steering system that is similar to the F-Type's. The system is designed to give the driver better feedback and control.
A double wishbone front and Integral Link rear suspension on the F-Pace boost handling and ride comfort. The crossover is built on Jaguar's new lightweight aluminum platform.
F-Pace pricing has not been announced. More details will be released when the Jaguar crossover debuts on September 15.
Edmunds says: Jaguar emphasizes that despite its practical bent, the F-Pace fits in perfectly with its sportier siblings in the Jaguar lineup.
